Michael Phelps Washington, May 16 (ANI): Olympic golden boy Michael Phelps has returned with a bang after three-month suspension following the pot scandal.

The 23-year-old swimmer easily qualified for the finals of two events at the Charlotte Ultraswim with a record time.

Phelps was second in the last heat of the 200-meter freestyle at 1 minute, 50.46 seconds, and came back to win the final heat of the 100 butterfly in 53.41 seconds.

In both events, he had the third-fastest time overall.

Phelps says that he is eager to start working toward some new goals.

“It’s kind of like Tiger (Woods) working on his putting game or his pitching game,” CBS News quoted Phelps as saying,

“It’s sort of completing the whole package,” he added. (ANI)
